Features
Hardware Features
Next-Generation Hardware Architecture Dominion KX II is a true next-generation switch with an advanced hardware and software architecture. This innovative design enables new levels of KVM-over-IP performance, reliability, usability, compatibility and security.
“Plug and Play” Appliance – Quick and Easy Setup Dominion KX II is a secure, Linux®-based hardware appliance. All Dominion KX II features, including authentication and Web access, are built into the unit and do not require the use of an additional server.
High Performance, Next-Generation Video Hardware with HD Video Resolution and Digital Audio Dominion KX II’s KVM-over-IP engine uses Raritan’s next-generation technology, providing users with virtual at-the-rack performance. Next-generation features include ultra-fast screen refresh, 1920 x 1080 high definition remote video resolution, digital audio and advanced color calibration.
Dual Power Supplies with Failover For increased reliability and redundancy, all Dominion KX II models have dual AC inputs, dual power supplies and automatic failover to support the redundant power distribution. If a power supply fails, the customer will be notified via front panel LED, SNMP TRAP, log message or via the administrative manager.
Four USB Ports for Keyboard, Mouse and USB Media The Dominion KX II has four USB 2.0 ports, three on the back panel and one on the front panel for local keyboard, mouse and USB media.
Dual Gigabit Ethernet Ports with Failover Dominion KX II provides high availability with dual gigabit Ethernet ports for redundancy. Should one Ethernet switch or interface card fail, Dominion KX II will automatically failover to the other port and continue operating.
Multiple Hardware Models Multiple hardware models enable simultaneous access by one, two four or eight remote users to 8, 16, 32 or 64 servers. Raritan is the first and only vendor to provide four and eight user, 64 port, digital KVM switches.
1U or 2U Form Factor The Dominion KX2-464 and KX2-864 are 2U solutions. Other Dominion KX II models are only 1U in height. Dominion KX II is extremely rack-efficient.
Cat5 Cabling Dominion KX II interconnects with each server via standard, economical Cat5 (UTP) cabling. Servers may be located up to 150 cable feet from the Dominion KX II unit.
Multiplatform Computer Interface Modules (CIMs) Dominion KX II supports multiplatform CIMs to connect to PS/2, USB, Sun® and serially controlled servers. Analog VGA video and new DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort digital video standards are supported. Dominion CIMs operate at distances of up to 150 feet from the Dominion KX II switch, depending on server resolution.
Configurable Hardware Reset Button Dominion KX II contains an administrator-configurable hardware reset button on the back panel.
Modem Port for Emergency Access All Dominion KX II models have an integrated modem port for emergency remote access via external modem if the data network is not available.
KVM-over-IP Connectivity
One, Two, Four or Eight Concurrent Remote IP Users Dominion KX II provides KVM-over-IP access to one, two, four or eight simultaneous, remote users depending on the model purchased. Raritan provides a wide variety of Dominion KX II models to meet most customer needs and budgets. This is achieved while allowing full, unblocked local port access.
8, 16, 32 or 64 Server Ports Users can connect up to 8, 16, 32 or 64 servers to each Dominion KX II via Cat5 cabling. Raritan is the first KVM-over-IP vendor with one, two, four and eight channel, 32-port models. And we are the only vendor with four and eight channel, 64-port digital KVM switches - the industry's highest density - consolidating up to four standard KVM switches to reduce cost and administration.
Remote Network Access - KVM over IP Dominion KX II has the industry’s highest performing and most flexible KVM-over-IP technology. Users can access Dominion KX II from anywhere on the network (LAN, WAN, Internet, mobile & dial-up), allowing administrators to troubleshoot, reconfigure, reboot and even power cycle servers remotely.
Apple® iPhone® and iPad® Mobile Access Users can remotely access and control servers through Apple iPhone and iPad devices with the same level of security that they now enjoy via their laptops. CC-SG 5.2 (or above) required.
Flexible Tiering (Cascading) of up to 1024 Servers Customers can connect (e.g., tier) multiple Dominion KX II switches together and access the attached servers in the data center or from a remote PC. Up to 1024 servers can be accessed via a consolidated port list, or via search (with wildcards).
Industry’s First Browser Based Local Console Port The Dominion KX II features the industry’s first browser-based local access. With a common, browser-based interface and full management functionality at the local port, the Dominion KX II provides a consistent user experience that is easy to learn. In addition, convenient hot-key switching between servers is now supported.
Asian Languages – Japanese and Simplified/Traditional Chinese The Dominion KX II’s remote HTML User Interface and the KVM Clients now support the Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese languages. This is available stand-alone as well as through CC-SG.
Blade Server Access and Control Dominion KX II supports popular blade server models from the leading blade server manufacturers: HP®, IBM®, Dell® and Cisco®. It provides simple, automated and secure KVM-over-IP access (1) at the rack, (2) remotely over IP, (3) via CommandCenter® and (4) by modem. Blade servers are displayed by chassis, with simple one-click access. Advanced security via per­blade access permissions and hot-key blocking eliminates unauthorized access. Unlike other vendors, the Dominion KX II’s blade features are available to SMB customers with no management system required. For enterprise customers, seamless blade server integration with CommandCenter Secure Gateway provides centralized policy and security management for diverse data center environments.
Integrated, Remote Power Control – Up to Eight Power Strips per Dominion KX II Users can power up, power down or power cycle servers connected to optional Raritan remote power control units. A system administrator can not only troubleshoot a server remotely, but also power cycle that server with a click of the mouse. This user-friendly, remote power control is available for up to eight power strips per Dominion KX II unit. Strip-level power statistics are now displayed to the user. Users can also power on/off outlets not associated with a server.
Extended Local Port on KX2-808, KX2-832 and KX2-864 Models The KX II eight-user models contain a standard local port, plus an additional port that extends the local port, via Cat5 cable, beyond the rack to a control room, another point in the data center or to a Dominion KX II or Paragon® II switch.
Dual CIMs Provide Redundant and/or Increased Access The Dominion KX II now supports Paragon II dual CIMs, which can connect servers in the data center to two different Dominion KX II switches. If one KX II switch is not available, the server can be accessed through the second KX II switch
